Small yellow spider with black spots - Enoplognatha ovata
Puyallup, Pierce County, Washington, USA May 26, 2008
I'm thinking Enoplognatha ovata, juvenile. This spider was eating a baby orb weaver (probably baby Cross Spider) I've also seen the zebra spiders making meals of these hatchlings. So far I've seen about six batches of Cross Spiders hatch, and that's just the ones I've seen.
